In our new Big Move of the Week, we feature one horse each week who impressed and might warrant a spot on your watch list. For the week ending December 13, the period of juvenile fillies continues with Lucy N Ethel.

- Last race: Lucy N Ethel was 1.10-1 when the gates opened at Parx Racing in a first-level allowance for two-year-old fillies on December 8. By the time the race was over, that seemed like extraordinarily generous odds, as she obliterated her five rivals, winning by over 13 lengths in a sharp time of 1:12.12. Older Pennsylvania-bred fillies and mares, also in a first allowance condition, took about two more seconds to cover the same ground five races later.
- Perfect so far: With the win, Lucy N Ethel won for the second time in two tries. She also took a maiden special weight event for PA-bred juvenile fillies by a length on November 16.
- Something in the water?: It marked the third straight “Big Move of the Week” given to a juvenile filly, as Pennsylvania-bred Behrnik’s Bank and Maryland-bred Cathryn Sophia had earned the award in prior weeks. It could be a fun year to come for the region’s fillies.
- Connections: Lucy N Ethel is trained at Parx by Ramon Preciado for J A G Racing and Jettany Thoroughbred Corp.
- Namesakes: One wonders: Does Lucy N Ethel have a half-brother named Ricky N Fred?
- Breeding: Lucy N Ethel was bred in Pennsylvania by her owners. She is a daughter of During out of the winning Silver Ghost mare Kid Silver.
